    TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) - The relief effort in the Philippines has barely begun. As many as 10,000 people -- and perhaps more -- are dead as a result of the typhoon that struck on Friday.More >>

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) - It's apparently just as tough getting into the hardest hit areas in the Philippines in the wake of the killer typhoon as it is to get out.

Most residents of the hardest hit city of Tacloban  spent the night under pouring rain - either in the ruins of their homes or in the open along roadsides and damaged trees.
